Branding expert Dorie Clark shows you how to promote yourself and your ideas as she deftly guides you through the steps to becoming a recognized thought leader in your industry. Granted, plenty of self-proclaimed thought leaders already exist in every conceivable arena, and there’s little doubt that Clark will inspire more false prophets (so be careful who you share this with).

  • How to gain a reputation as a thought leader and
  • How your status as an expert can pay off.
